TL;DR: In this paper, the authors measured turbulence parameters in a baffled, Rushton turbine agitated vessel with a laser-Doppler velocimeter, and the necessary corrections for the periodic, nondissipative velocity fluctuations in the near impeller region were made by an autocorrelation method.

TL;DR: In this paper, large eddy simulations were performed on the flow in a baffled stirred tank, drien by a Rushton turbine at Res 29,000, using a lattice Boltzmann scheme for discretizing the Naier ) Stokes equations, and a force-field technique for representing the action of the impeller on the fluid.
Abstract: Large eddy simulations were performed on the flow in a baffled stirred tank, drien by a Rushton turbine at Res 29,000. The simulation procedure consisted of a lattice ) Boltzmann scheme for discretizing the Naier ) Stokes equations, and a force- field technique for representing the action of the impeller on the fluid. The subgrid-scale model was a conentional Smagorinsky model with a Smagorinsky constant c s 0.12. s The uniform, cubic computational grid had a size of about 6 = 10 6 nodes. The com- puter code was implemented on a parallel, shared-memory computer platform. The results on the phase-resoled aerage flow, as well as on the turbulence characteristics, are compared with phase-resoled experimental data. The trailingortex structure in the ¤icinity of the impeller was well represented by the simulations.

TL;DR: In this article, an equation for mixing time recently published by BHR Group can be related to a basic turbulence model and it is also shown that this equation is superior to those based on a theory linking mixing time to the flow generated by the impeller.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, numerical simulations of the flow field in baffled mixing tanks, based on three alternative methods, are presented and discussed, where the impeller is not explicitly simulated, and its effects are modelled by imposing suitable, empirically derived, boundary conditions to the external flow.
